U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a national youth leadership development organization that promotes interest and skill in naval disciplines while instilling strong moral character and life skills through leadership and technical programs modeled after the Navy’s professional development system. USNSCC is composed of two programs.
The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through the completion of high school. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 10 through 13. Today’s U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills; instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet; demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle; and expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation’s armed forces.
The local program, Monadnock Squadron, is sponsored by American Legion Post 5 of Peterborough, NH. More information is available at www.seacadets.org or www.monadnocksquadron.org ; also check out the local program at: https://www.facebook.com/monadnocksquadron.
